This is a perfect opportunity to introduce Intuitive Art (creating art based on imagination, feelings and intentions), and the Surrealist Art Movement of the mid 1920’s.
Explore the weird, the quirky the surreal becoming real “surreality” (a bit like our current situation in our world today).
Some of the most influential artists created the most thought-proving and imaginative pieces of Art by setting their minds free to delve into dreams, fantasy and feelings.
Many of these artists were inspired by Sigmund Freud the well-known psychoanalyst (a doctor who explore the human mind and subconscious). Encourage your child to have fun exploring drawing or painting their dreams or fantasies. Perhaps even start to use imaginative play and merge the conscious and unconscious to create weird, quirky and surreal becoming real “surreality” images.
